THE ORANG-U-CHANGE CAMPAIGN

Why Support ORANG-U-CHANGE?

Hello. Firstly, thank you so much for visiting my site. I am no creative writer so please stick with me as I write from my heart and muddle my way through this introduction. I have a huge passion for this beautiful planet, like many of us do and so I have created the ORANG-U-CHANGE campaign. I have started this because most of us, including myself have been walking around supermarkets for years, buying items that are destroying our planet’s rainforest at a disastrous rate with horrible consequences.

Where in the World is this Happening?

Malaysia and Indonesia produce 87% of the world’s Palm oil, 41% and 46% respectively and so are losing their rainforest at a devastating rate as a direct result of our shopping habits, and the many brands we buy that don’t commit to using responsibly sourced palm oil.

Why is this Affecting the Orangutan Population so Severely?

Orangutans once lived across the forests of Asia but now can only be found on the two islands of Borneo (belonging to Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei) and Sumatra (belonging to Indonesia). Orangutans have lost 80% of their habitat in the last 20 years and are now critically endangered, facing extinction in the next 25 years if current deforestation continues.

Please follow, share and like to help support the campaign. Thank you.
